listen to the very popular old nursery rhyme “little bo peep lyrics” and watch the video are given below.
The most common versions of the rhyme are very similar to that collected by James Orchard Halliwell in the mid-nineteenth century:
Girls and boys, come out to play,
The moon doth shine as bright as day;
Leave your supper, and leave your sleep,
And come with your playfellows into the street.
Come with a whoop, come with a call,
Come with a good will or not at all.
Up the ladder and down the wall,
A halfpenny roll will serve us all.
You find milk, and I’ll find flour,
And we’ll have a pudding in half an hour.
Other versions often put boys before girls in the opening line.
Here is the melody for the first two lines.

History of girls and boys come out to play
The following excerpt comes from a time when childhood was best enjoyed during the evening hours. The first two lines at least have been traced back to French dances (“chanson des Bergers”) in the late 16th century. One theory of origin ascribes it to Aesop’s Fables, which were popular until at least 1590. It appeared among a number of English versions by 1711 and turned up in The Beggar’s Opera (1728), a satire; “The Dogs Distressed” (1792) as a sign of poor times; and Tommy Thumb’s Pretty Song Book (c. 1744). The very earliest print version was published around 1760 in Words for the Nursery: or, Mother Goose’s Melodies with their Original Reflections, reprinted several times to 1765, but without mention of its source (or authorship).
